Survival of the Fittest

I have one huge item on my wish list this Christmas. I've been looking up toaster oven reviews so I can find the best one and surreptitiously suggest it to my husband this Christmas. This huge wish of mine was brought about by finally being fed-up of constantly feeling afraid of taking my toast out every morning. 

For some godforsaken reason or other, the toasted bread that is supposed to jump out high enough for normal adult humans to retrieve, simply gets stuck deep inside next to the still glowing embers of the toaster. My toast always ends up in pieces as I pick and pinch at it in my efforts to retrieve my breakfast. 

As if sensing impending doom, it just refuses to budge. After a few minutes my pizzazz for toast has died down somewhat (which I believe was the intended notion all along) and when I do get it out, I munch at it somewhat halfheartedly. It seems toast too can be cunning.

Helpful information from AOL:

" You may use toaster ovens to heat up a quick snack, but they can actually use up to 50 percent less electricity than conventional ovens. So, if you're in the market for a new toaster oven, here are a few ways to shop smart and find the right one for your budget.

First, when choosing a model, always think about what you'll be cooking in it. If you're mainly warming up smaller meals, look into entry-level models, which are ideal for basic warming, baking and toasting. These generally cost under $50, and while they don't have the extra bells and whistles of the pricier models, you probably won't be using those features.

If you often cook in batches or for large groups, a mid-range model has more power and capacity, which is likely a better bet for your kitchen. These models range between $50 and $150, and are much roomier and more versatile for bigger dishes, like lasagna and even roast chicken.

You'll also get slicker features, like digital controls and a temperature probe, so you can cook your meals with more precision. Mid-range models are great as a second oven, too -- in fact, some can handle up to 90 percent of what a conventional oven does.

When it comes to capacity, some companies like to boast about how many bread slices a toaster oven can hold, but it's not entirely accurate. Some ovens will claim to toast up to six slices at once, but since there is no universal standard for slice size, you should take these claims with a grain of salt. For a better idea of capacity, go by the actual dimensions.

So in the end, assess your cooking needs, your counter space and your budget before you choose the right toaster oven. Try out these tips, and you'll be heating up your meals without burning your budget! "

The Cheapest Best Microwave

Microwave nowadays are so expensive, some of us couldn't even afford one. The cheap ones on the market are low class microwave and they do not work really well. A proper microwave costs about $800 each. So, I went to scout for a cheaper microwave that has great features and I found one. 

The Samsung SMH9187 is the best microwave that doesn't burn a hole in my wallet all thanks to the Japanese. The Samsung SMH9187 has great features such as defrosting, vents and etc. First I'd like to talk about the drawbacks for this microwave. There are some durability problems along the way but it works well if you know how to maintain them.

Also, it gets a little noisy at times when it is set to high heat. The best part about this microwave is its great heating and defrosting skills. It heats up and defrosts food evenly and I never have any problems with that so far. It is also very user friendly and everything works with a push of a button!
